I have had a photographic career spanning almost my entire life, specializing in all phases of photography including photographic processes, techniques, and the history of photography. I began by using the Silver Gelatin Print process with darkroom and enlarger since the early 1940s. In 1947 I enlisted in the U. S. Army and served as a photographer with Special Services attached to the 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th Division, in Japan. In Japan I was teaching photography as taking photos with my speed graphic camera. Upon leaving the army, I entered the graphic arts field as a photographer and graphic artist in color separations.
I have had the unique opportunity to explore and perfect a wide range of photographic techniques.
I have invented and pioneered a number of photographic processes and techniques in color separation, archival inks, photographic printing as well as methods for printing on canvas. I am a published author with a number of books and articles on the History of Photography (Anthony, The Man, The Company, The Cameras) as well as on American Indian history. A small very limited edition book of, "The Photography Of Bill Marder A Retrospective", has my work with tipped in Canvas photos. At present still doing my photography using a 50x zoom digital camera with my computer as my darkroom. I Try to keep my diverse photos as realistic as possible and enjoy doing everything myself from start to finish using 16x20 mats for my prints, as well as my specialty of printing on Canvas with archival inks and framing them. Achieving and still continuing to photograph almost 75 years of my life in Photography, I was fortunate to be able to save all my many Photos of all these years . Looking back at my Photos and my Photo books it is a History of the Greatest Generation of this era, including as well my artistic photos of my travels throughout the USA and to many foreign countries.
